Just to be clear, I do agree that having the text to accompany the audio would be a nice touch, being able to hear it being read is truly a wondrous experience. Thank you for providing these audio recordings here.

Every time there's a good poem here there always several comments requesting the text. On one level I understand this, but on another level it mystifies me. It's very difficult to find good recordings of poems while the Internet is filled with the texts of poems.
